And because my brain is fried by now and I did all these fairly quickly and like finished a day ago, they probably won't be too detailed:
Black Phoenix - "Our signature oil. A dark, languid scent. Promotes hedonistic tendencies and extreme self-love. You won't stop kissing mirrors for a month."
This was the first one I tried for this mini-batch, and one that I'd ordered and... I... don't even really remember how it was. -_- Obviously it didn't exactly make a burning impression on my mind, for better or worse. I'm thinking it was a vaguely musky scent that I was slightly negative toward, but I'm not even sure about that, already. At the very least, it didn't work as advertised on the first tryout. Nary a kiss of a mirror the whole time I wore it.
Saint-Germain - ""A man who knows everything and who never dies." Said to have lived for centuries, the Comte de Saint-Germain is truly a man of legend and mystery. He was an aristocrat, master alchemist, adventurer, magician, artist, and seer with a lust for exquisite jewels, and was reputed to have attained knowledge of the Elixer of Life. His knowledge was so vast and all-encompassing that his claim to have lived hundreds of years - he allegedly knew Jesus and was present at the Council of Nicea - was widely accepted as true. He is a Hermetic Magician's hero for the ages, and his scent is an elegant, timeless, truly refined cologne, bold yet classic: gilded amber, hypnotic lavender, brash carnation and deep mosses."
This one was one of the freebies, and surprisingly was a more "typical perfume" type scent that I actually liked in general. I usually go more for the herbals/florals, or sometimes the foodish stuff so far, and don't like typical cologne-type scents. This one however pleased me for some reason. Not enough that I was leaping up and down and immediately ordering a larger bottle but... enough that I'll definitely have to try it again.
Sea of Glass - "Upon the Sea of Glass, glowing with the perfection of spiritual union and the radiance of true wisdom, rests the throne of God. A scent of inimitable purity, crystalline grace, and limitless light."
Not much of a description, but intriguing enough that I wanted to give it a spin, and ordered it as part of my imp selection. It's... um... definitely different. If it needed a new name for some reason, I think I'd call it "Paradox." It's heavy, yet light in some ways. It seems at one sniff to be almost a non-scent, but it's also a very deep scent. It's all in all hard to describe. On the forums I saw a few people mention it as being "aquatic," which is probably the best description. It's what water would smell like, if it really had a scent. Er... I'll stop babbling in my attempts to describe it, now.
Anyhow, I... wasn't thrilled with this scent, but I was intrigued. It's one of those scents that could swing back the other way for me on a few more wearings, or I could just decide that I hate it. But it's definitely interesting.
Desire "The overwhelming agony of passion crystallized into a singularly dark and magnetic blend: bittersweet neroli, black patchouli and black musk, gilded by apple, bergamot, blood red rose, teak, and vanilla."
Envy - "Green herbs slithering through mint, lime and lavender."
The first was one I didn't order, the second, one that I did.
Honestly... neither one sticks in my brain now. Ugh. I think I should have just done like 3 at a time and reported on them then, plus I think part of the problem is that I rushed it too much, and some of the scents may have still lingered from previous try-outs, despite trying to make sure I'd scrubbed my wrist and it was nice and fresh. At any rate, what I did try of these apparently wasn't anything special enough to stick with me. I'll have to give them another spin on their own, another time, and see if I note anything more about them.
Okay, so this try-out was a bit of a wash. -_- Ah well, there's always the next batch, which I'll have to try to do better with...
(Must put in order soon, come to think of it, so I can get that delicious-sounding Gingerbread Poppet before the 15th cuts off the LE orders...)
